Q: Does you local train station have a clock?

So I just finished my summer vacation to Saipan this year and waiting in the Beijing South train station departure area, I noticed that if you did not have a watch or a phone, there is no clock with the current time.


Jinan post the current time on the computer board and the platform while your waiting.


Smaller stations usually have a clock on the wall at some distance from the seating area.


I just thought if a traveler from a different time zone came off a flight and taxi to the train station and could not get the correct time and did not speak Chinese, he or she is SOL In the capital city of China. Rather odd.


In other news for any Americans, have to check the facts with some research, but Saipan has medicare for all inhabitants regardless of income and a flat 9 percent income tax regardless of income, and no winter, might have found my new retirement home, one local had his daughter flown to San Diego for surgery, plane, hotel, everything paid.

Ya I've noticed the missing clocks in stations. Now they just display the time on the electronic schedule boards.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
